Since 1974 when Ronald Reagan gave the first keynote address, the Republican Road to the White House has run through CPAC, the annual political conference run by the American Conservative Union. Since 2014 that organization has been run by Matt Schlapp.
Schlapp served two years as the White House Director of Political Affairs in the first George W. Bush Administration and his wife, Mercedes, worked in the White House under both President Bush and Donald Trump.
In this interview, Schlapp addresses the reasons behind the loyalty of Donald Trump’s supporters, the current “cancel culture” and the reluctance of former Vice-President Mike Pence to speak at CPAC and to talk about the irregularities of the 2020 vote and what went on at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
